Hello everyone!  In case you haven’t heard, our event “Galactica” is fast approaching and we couldn’t be more excited. Over the next three blog posts, we are going to further introduce you to our guest speakers and our Master of Ceremonies.  Today’s post is dedicated to our first guest speaker Christopher Sean.  Christopher Sean was born in Washington State.

From a Military Spouse

June 27, 2019

Dear Friends of Comfort Crew, I am a Navy Wife of 15 years, a mother to two amazingly resilient Navy kids, a Navy and Marine Granddaughter, an Army Daughter, and an Airforce Sister. Recently, I’ve been given the privilege of taking on the role of Command Family Ombudsman in Virginia Beach. Needless to say, our military and their families hold a very special place in my heart. In April 2017, my husband checked into his current command, gearing up to deploy for 7 months overseas. This would be my kids first experience with a deployment. Honestly, I think I was more terrified of the unknown for them than they were until a friend introduced me to her Comfort Crew “With You All the Way” Kit. As a family, the four of us sat down and watched the DVD together. It was at that moment I was able to feel confident […]

Remarks by Second Lady Karen Pence to Military Spouses

September 21, 2018

 “Isn’t he cute? His name is Cuzzie. But we also have, inside the box, a journal, a guide for families, postcards, suggestions for ways to stay connected while that family member is deployed. And it’s just a little something that we can do. Last week we had about 30 spouses of congressmen come to the Vice President’s Residence — bipartisan — and we assembled 500 of these boxes, and we brought them all with us here to Fort Carson. (Applause.) Those spouses packed each kit with care and respect for the sacrifices that military families make. And later today, it will be my honor to give these out to those children. I want to thank Comfort Crew for Military Kids for collaborating with us and helping us to make this happen. Ronda and Woody Englander, please stand so that we can recognize you. (Applause.) Ronda lost her dad in the […]
